    1. The story itself took me into another world created in the point of view of an Portuguese American character It scared me how uncanny the resemblance of Clara to myself, or any other women out there who wanted to express their freedom, their emotions, their longing and sadness without the stereotypes of each generation when it comes to women Helio s character can also be related in a sense of being a wondrous mix of grounded reality and dreamscapes with his obsession in grafting The two souls me [...]

    2. I just finished this book, and it was amazing So many ideas about color, how it permeates the world, right up my alley Some ideas in it are things I have mulled over many times before, some are totally new and exciting Very, very creative writing style How life, love, and all experiences are handled in this book denotes a frame of mind unbounded, exuberant, and deeply in touch with the Source.I could understand contextually most of the Portuguese phrases, a few I didn t know I d like to talk the [...]

    3. I felt like I was reading a long poem or hearing someone recount a dream in that the storyline matters less than the way the words are put together and the images that the author so vividly brings to the mind of the reader I gave this book a lot of my time, energy and attention but I was not able to quite finish it because it lacked the forward motion that I need in a book.
